Patch loading : definition?


#1

Do anyone know what’s meant by patch loading ?


#2

I’ve never see that one.

Did you try turning it off and back on again?


#3

Vertical concentrated loads that are applied to one flange, over the loading length, ss, of a steel girder are referred to as patch loading. The load can in this case be introduced through the upper or the lower flange.

That’s what google said. Do I know what that means: no.


#4

I want know the correct definition for patch loading ( in silo design ) , that’s y I asked here .


#5

I would need more context to run an adequate google search. Is it suppose to be pack instead of patch?


#6

If you’re asking about pack loading… It’s a form of cheating.

Otherwise, maybe this isn’t the best place to ask your question?

Maybe someone here knows. :man_shrugging:
